  1. This post is inane. Anyone who didn;t know better would read this and say “Well, then, I’m using illutrator!” without understanding that they are two complete;y different tools used for two completely different tasks. Good luck retouching your photos in illustrator.

    1. Totally agree with the MIKE BONHEI, You need to know what works best for your project, when you are working with image editing and manipulation then its preferred to use Photoshop and on the other side if you are working with vector base, multi pages or large format graphic then is preferred to us Illustrator

  2. Well i use both Illustrator and Photoshop and i can’t work with only one. I understand this post because lot’s of desingers are using Photoshop for Logo and Vector design. This makes me cry…

    BTW: You can take multiple steps backward: Ctrl + Shift + Z

  3. I like the comparisons. The only thing that seemed silly was the designer vs. artist. I mean it’s such an arbitrary call anyway. Then to symbolize artists as long haired and designers as tight up with gel seems a bit silly too. It’s just one very narrow, Americanized viewpoint to be mixed in with all this data about two actual software programs.

    Also, I’m not sure Photoshop is used mostly by artists. I think it would be used mostly by ad agencies who serve art directors. The guys using photoshop still look like designers while the art director guys telling them to ‘make the text 5% bigger’ and ‘lessen the drop shadow a touch’ look more like your artist icon. I think a more creative way would be to make a designer symbolized by a color swatch and an artist symbolized by a painters pallet . . . that would say something about how the programs are actually used in relation to color.

  4. I’m sorry but this is just pointless. Each has their place. I don’t really get what point you are trying to convey. Each program is deeper than some 12 item graph. But if it’s for a school project it looks ok.

  5. The file saving time made me laugh :P but as far as comparison is concern, this does show Photoshop as problem. It would have been great if you could have also added advantages of uses them. When to use Illustrator and Photoshop. For example, if I want to create a website, I can design my logo in Illustrator and web design which is more pixel related in Photoshop :)

  6. Illustrator needs to learn a ton from CAD programs before it becomes worth using. Have fun making pretty pictures in an ancient, crippling software that crashes once you get even slightly complex, has absolutely horrible selection commands, and takes way more memory than it deserves. I have a 64 gig RAM computer that can run 3 Gb files in Rhino, AutoCad, or Photoshop seamlessly, but anytime anything is over 250 mb in illustrator it freezes, crashes, and loses files.

    Adobe is good, but illustrator sucks.

  7. Not any comparison between both
    Never, never, never

    Completely different platforms, for different solutions
    I miss FreeHand, I don´t like Ai
    FH is the best, for me of course.
    since 1991
